Bella is the belle of the ball! This one-year-old Lab-Hound mix ended up at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on May 3rd as a stray. Not much was known about where she came from, but it seemed like she may have been an outdoor dog who was stuck in a small pen. This sweet, shy girl didn’t seem to be familiar with the joys of bones, toys, and treats, most likely never having them in the past. Sadly, Bella was also heartworm positive.

On May 10th, Karen Steers with Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina contacted RADAR to ask if we could help with Bella’s heartworm treatment. If so, the rescue would pull her. We agreed and Bella was safe! She received her treatments on July 11th and 12th.

The rescue had this to share about Bella: “She liked her foster-dog brother and followed his lead. She would enjoy being in a home with another dog but would also probably be okay being the only dog. She is developing her self-confidence, so she would be best suited for a patient family. Bella enjoys laying on the couch and is going to make a great couch-potato companion! She is learning leash manners. She aims to please and is looking forward to taking training classes with her new family!” Click here to view more photos of Bella.

RADAR paid all of Bella’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $291.

UPDATE! Bella has been adopted!
